Complement merchandising with restrained colours

“Creating an aspirational retail environment is an art, and it’s one that I believe I have perfected over the years. 

For this project, I worked to create a commercial space that was androgynous and welcoming, while ensuring the merchandise remained the focal point." 

Chris Connell designs with Laminex in this retail space
Chris Connell designed retail space featuring Laminex Green Slate cabinetry and plinths; and Laminex Aries feature wall.

The core palette

“I utilized a curated colour palette to keep things neutral while using brighter tones within the interior cabinetry to act as a highlight for the product on display”. 

 

A perfect canvas

The Laminex Green Slate cabinetry designed by Chris features a range of geometric shelving units in a playful array of sizes. The shelving interior is lined in Laminex Alpine Mist which provides a neutral canvas for the product within.

Remain down to earth

The introduction of Laminex Green Slate for the wall display provides an earthy element and layer of definition. The concertina wall in Laminex Aries adds interest, and contrasts beautifully with the display plinths also in Laminex Green Slate.
